Cars too... thanks to people like long-time-member Jerry Wager!

You walk by a tractor and you think you hear it talk to you. Are you going crazy? Maybe... or it might just be the antics of Dallas Few using some radio trickery!


Fall / Winter / Spring Meetings

Visitors Welcome!

Meetings are usually held the first Saturday of each month 6:30 during October through June.

Enjoy a dinner and social time with fellow hobbyists. Meetings are casual. Club business and issues regarding the planning of upcoming events are addressed quickly so there is always plenty of time for social and hobby related conversation. You are welcome to bring the kids.

The meetings are held at Savings Bank and Trust in downtown Chippewa Lake.

After the regular meeting some participants usually go to the Country Kitchen restaurant in the truckstop building on the southwest corner at the truckstop area at the intersection of Route 224 and Lake Road (South of Chippewa Lake). The southwest side of the intersection is the "McDonalds" side.

Hope to see you at the next meeting and don't miss our Annual Show, Fair exhibit, and Picnic. (See details of each below.)
